A Study of High End Big Game Hunting in 2020

Presented by

Brandon Levene, Head of Applied Intelligence

About this talk

Opportunistically targeted ransomware deployments, aka Big Game Hunting (BGH), have caused a distinct disruption in the mechanics of monetizing crimeware compromises. This strategy has become the “end game” for the majority of organized cybercrime organizations, and one effect of this shift is the increased emphasis on enterprise-level targets. This session will walk you through research about how a specific BGH threat actor pursues entry points, gains its foothold, pivots, and deploys payloads to maximize their financial gains with minimal effort - and infrastructure! You’ll walk away with an understanding of the latest BGH TTPs seen in enterprise environments, and how they map to the ATT&CK framework so you can build this research into your threat detection strategy and enhance your defenses.
